Sam's B-Day Show w/ The Foghorns, Sam Russell and the Harborrats, Casey Ruff & The Mayors of Ballard

  • The Foghorns

    The Foghorns

    Country

    Anti-folkers The Foghorns began in 2001 with Bart Cameron bringing songs written in Wisconsin to Brooklyn New York for various strange performances, mainly with the help of Brooklyn bluegrass band The Cobble Hillbillies. The band released two albums in New York.

    When Bart moved to Iceland in 2003 as a Fulbright Fellow, he revamped the band and toured Iceland using the moniker. In Iceland, Bart released a bucket and guitar folk album, So Sober. The band, still with bucket percussion, performed across Iceland including performing twice at Iceland Airwaves, at Innipukinn, and more than a 100 other performances across the island.

     

     

  • Sam Russell & the Harborrats

    Sam Russell & the Harborrats

    Alternative Rock

    Sam Russell is one of Seattle's best-kept secrets. For 10 years now, he's been serving up gritty Southern-soul infused electro-Americana...or if you wanna get non-fancy about it, Rock n' Roll with two capital "R"'s.

    Born in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Sam traveled around the country in his younger days perfecting his alternating palette of raw and smooth vocal stylings before settling in Seattle and forming his loose band of musical cohorts, The Harborrats.

    Sam Russell has been wowing 'em across the Pacific Northwest for years. Come see what the fuss is all about while Sam performs songs from hisupcoming album, old favorites and out-of-left-field covers.

    "Let your faith –the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of that music which has yet to be heard– guide you. For Sam Russell is the light." Sean Jewell, American Standard Time

    "Sam Russell is a performer an audience loves, and just about every musician is loath to follow."Bart Cameron, Ball of Wax Audio Quarterly

    "As a vocalist he can deliver folk songs, soul songs and rockers....As a songwriter, he seems to have no genre boundaries, and has the ability to write songs that sound like classics from the first listen." When You Motor Away....blog

    "more a garage-soul band more than anything, but they work in lots of other stuff. (Sam) has loads of stage presence and a strong voice. The guitarist (who also occasionally plays mandolin) lays down lots of really cool, off-kilter leads....Some cool back-and-forth time shifts in many of their songs that really pack a punch when they jump back into a raucous chorus" Don Slack, KEXP 90.3, Seattle

    "It's easy to be icked out by the term "blue-eyed soul". It conjures images of middle-aged white dudes raping the soul of Sam Cooke and it's been applied to everyone from yacht-rocker Michael McDonald to the Off the Wall stylings of Justin Timberlake. But in the case of Sam Russell's Harborrats, whose past EP's have run the rootsy gamut between the Killer and the Boss, the term is apt." Ma'chell Duma LaVassar, Seattle Weekly

    "the doo-wopping local boys in Sam Russell & The Harborrats defy rockabilly cliché and show promise with their unaffected take on blue-eyed soul and rock..."-Hannah Levin, ..The Stranger

    Folk

The third progeny of a ranch/farm/music teaching family, he is the most urban-dwelling member of his bloodline and is never too far away from home. Casey Ruff bar-tends at the world famous Tractor Tavern in Ballard and is a lover of live music and spirits. Casey Ruff acquired his band-mates in a Sabaac game against Lando Calrissian after finding they were stowed away in the smuggling compartments of the ship, that he gambled for, and won.
